None, as i don't really see the benefit to clear turn signals. Guess I'm just old.

Well, the yellow color that US spec lights have just clashes with the rest of the car...

Black is to match the headlight housing on the 325 and 330 ZHP. Titanium is to match the 330. Choose whichever one matches your car. I don't see where "preference" means much when selecting between the two.

But I believe you can switch out the housing in the headlights to match... correct?

Well judging from poll results, photo's I've looked at, and the fact I already have black housing in, I think I will just go with the black housing for the turn sigs as well. Thanks for the input everyone.
